Change the application to TeXShop, the Menu Title to Zoom Out and the keyboard shortcut to Cmd-- (i.e., press the Cmd and - keys) and then the Add button. You have now changed Zoom Out to be activated by Cmd--! Enjoy.

Sigh... following the directions above does indeed make Cmd-- enact Zoom Out in the Preview Window but it also removes that command from Zooming Out for the Source window. I rarely zoom the Source window (except when I do a Workshop) so that's not a big deal. But I find being able to Zoom Out in the Preview Window more useful when examining some displays, etc.
